Last night I had some time to make a card for the Make it Monday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. Dawn McVey did a great video which you can see here: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/
I love all the cards that the Papertrey Design Team showcase on their blogs. I decided to follow the basic design of Dawn's card for my take on this challenge and to use my current favorite dies the new damask snowflake dies from Papertrey ink. I just love these....I love anything to do with snow and snowflakes! And these dies are gorgeous alone or layered together.
Here are some pictures of my card:
All the supplies, other than adhesive, twine, and tsukineko sheer shimmer spritz, and glitter (Martha Stewart coarse white) are from Papertrey Ink. The red tape adhesive that I used did not hold the ribbon as well as I would have liked overnight. Even with the extra strips of tape on the back side of the focal panel both of the cards that I attempted had loose ribbon the next morning. The other card will have to be completely redone! I will definitely try score tape on my next card - it seemed to have disappeared off of my desk and I was unable to use it last night - perhaps a little elf in my house has moved it to an unknown location? LOL!
Here you can see the MS coarse white glitter that I added to the tips of the white snowflake and the smooch spritz! I also edged the card in fresh snow ink to make it appear more wintry!
Here is my little tag of "warm wishes" that I tied through one of the openings in the snowflake with some turquoise divine twine. I just love the tiny tags set and can't wait to receive the new holiday version. My order should be here any time now! I can't wait!
Well that is it for today's card...thanks so much for taking a look. I love seeing what everyone else creates and visiting everyone's blogs! It is like a little surprise each time I click. Isn't it amazing and beautiful how we each view the world so uniquely and our creations reflect that beauty back to each other and inspire all of us! I just love that!
Happy Card Making!
